Under the Sea

Well I was card making with Mel and Davina this past Saturday making some cards, for a Christmas fundraising event our church does during the Christmas season ,and after we finished our quota for that we did a few personal projects. I made this card with a very beginner image that I actually coloured with some copic markers so I could play around with them. The colouring isn't anything spectacular but I had chosen this image with my niece Hannah in mind. Right now, Ariel is her fav princess, and both her and her older sister put in a request for me(Auntie) to make them EACH a card and send it in the mail- note:this is what happens after you send one card to a child!! So i thought I should do something with this image now and this was my mastermind plan. I really suck as drawing but the card is in the shape of a shell which i coloured with my tombow markers in attempts to make it look a little more life-like. I distressed the edges very lightly with an ink (antique linen- i think) for a little more depth. I cut a circle out of some pearlized paper to cut out a pearl and pop-dotted it on a small fleshy pink circle. All the pink circles matting the images, etc. were created with the circle spellbinder kit. The sentiment was one i had on hand and I used Dew drops to create bubbles. I glitzed up the image with some different stickles in Dark Blue(hair) and Patina(mermaid).
I thought it was cute.....totally of season but cute!!
Hannah will love it!
